Re: What are you listening to right now?

One of the beauties of having teenage daughters is me discovering new music through them.

I’m currently listening to Crawlers The Mess We Seem To Make and Lizzy McAlpine.

Her track chemtrails has me in bits.

Re: London meet up - Saturday 17th February

Cheers mate!

There were a couple of apologies on the day which is almost inevitable but the 17 of us had a great time.

These meet ups are getting better and better.

The manager of the pub messaged me to say we were a delight and she looks forward to having us back.

Tickets are not yet on sale and I have not seen any indication of prices.

I expect Elvis will attend the opening night as he doesn’t have a show scheduled.

Yup!

He said to me after a gig “Here’s a man who knows all the words to all the songs”. :D
